In a division :

The number by which division is made is called the dividend.

The number of times by which division is made is called the divisor.

The number of times the divisor is contained in the dividend is called the quotient.

After subtracting the product of divisors and quotient from the dividend, we get the remainder.

 \text{Dividend}=(\text{Divisor}\times \text{Quotient})+\text{Remainder}.

Dividend =125 .

Divisor =8.

Quotient =15.

Remainder =5 .

Properties :

  1. On dividing a non-zero number by 1 , the quotient is the number itself. 
    Ex- :
    86\div 1=86 ; 619\div 1=619 ;
  2. On dividing a non-zero number by itself, the quotient obtained  is 1.
    Ex- :
    67\div 67=1; 809\div 809=1.
  3. Division by zero has no meaning.
  4. On dividing 0 by non-zero number, the quotient obtained is 0.
    Ex- :
    0\div 89=0; 0 \div 617=0.
